New "Says You!" Tapings in Seattle This Weekend!

I’ll be in Seattle for the live tapings of the NPR radio quiz/comedy show “Says You!” this Friday 4/5 and Saturday 4/6. Shows are at the University of Washington’s Kane Hall at 7:30 p.m. Tickets and more info available here.

SO MUCH FUN to banter and play with such an esteemed gaggle (cluster? murder? pride? hmmm) of smart and witty folks such as Tony Award winner Murray Horwitz, culture critic Carolyn Faye Fox, and Erin McKean, founder of online dictionary Wordnik.com. All hosted by the inimitable (though we will certainly attempt an imitation or two) Gregg Porter, the Seattle radio superstar.

I’ll post the air dates of the shows later, in case you can’t be there in person!

Either I’m applauding ourselves or measuring a small invisible animal.

My NPR's "Says You!" Podcast Available Now!

Now available to stream anytime you like, the first of my two episodes on the NPR word game quiz show "Says You!" is available here and also on iTunes and Google Play. I had so much fun as a panelist, and you can hear me sweat as I scramble to keep up with my brilliant fellow panelists. Look for the episode titled "Verbs with a View," which was taped in Monterey, CA with a wonderful live audience earlier this year.

I was so thrilled to be a part of this fun show (you can find out more about the show here). Stay tuned for my second episode, available via podcast soon...

On NPR Radio Show "Says You!" This Weekend!

Take a listen to your local NPR station's broadcast of the radio quiz show "Says You!" this weekend and listen for me. I was so honored and thrilled to be included as a panelist when the brain-teasing radio program taped two episodes in Monterey, CA earlier this year. It was SO FUN to participate in front of such a huge and wonderful crowd.

If the show is not carried in your area, you'll be able to check out the podcast starting April 14. I'll provide a link here when it's up. Meanwhile, check your local NPR radio listings for "Says You!" starting today or find out more at www.saysyouradio.com.

LIVE on "SAYS YOU!" Public Radio Show 2/18

So excited to be a panelist on the public radio show "Says You!" on Sunday, Feb 18!  I LOVE games, and word games especially. Here's the description from the show's website: "Take one word, add two teams, create three definitions and throw in a live audience. And, that’s Says You! – the last word in radio quiz shows since 1996. If you could play badminton with words, it would sound much like Says You!"

Count. Me. In.

And if you're not sure if you're local station carries "Says You" then check here. OR you can always just listen to the podcast after we air, which will be available via iTunes, Google Play, or via the Says You! app. (I'll post a link here once it is uploaded.)

Wish me luck! I plan to sleep on my dictionary the night before so that I'll be prepared. I am quite sure that will yield excellent results.
